Directions to make your paper plate Angel

STEP 1: Gather supplies

STEP 2: Prepare the paper plate

To get started, cut the plate into four even sections as seen below. Don't worry about making them perfect as you will be trimming them in just a second.

Next, cut a circle out of the top section to make the angel's head. Then, trim the bottom section a little at each end for the body. The remaining pieces will be the Angel's wings.

STEP 3: Thread the Angel

Once you've done that, use a hole punch to make holes along the outer edges as seen below, and punch one hole at each center point.

Next, thread the pink yarn through the top hole and into one of the bottom holes and then back through the top. Continue this pattern until you've completed the Angel's dress. Tie the loose ends together at the back.

TIP: To help younger children with threading the yarn add a little tape to the end of the yarn and they will find it much easier to thread it through the holes.

Repeat the same process with the yellow yarn on the wings.

Arrange the pieces so that the wings are on each sides of the body and then use a small piece of yarn to thread through the top hole of each piece and secure them together as shown below.

STEP 4: Finalize your paper plate Angel

To finish up the craft, draw a cute face and hair onto the circle piece for the Angel's head. Attach it to the body using glue or tape to complete the lacing craft. Another fun idea could be to add a photography of your child's face to the circle instead!
